Moogfest 2011 Line-Up Announced

Moogfest, the music festival named after Robert Moog, inventor of the effects pedal and the famous Moog synthesizer, has announced its line-up for 2011, and it looks like the attendees will have 3 busy days:

The Flaming Lips, Passion Pit will headline the fest, but festival-goers will also be able to see King Crimson member Adrian Belew and his Power Trio, post-punk Anika, Owen Pallett pal Austra, New York’s experimental electronic Battles, Berlin-based trio Brandt Bauer Frick, Grizzly Bear’s bassist/producer side project Cant, avant jazz trio Causing A Tiger, pop duo Chromeo, disco-punk Crystal Castles, sci-fi-synth-sound makers Ford & Lopatin, funk duo Ghostland Observatory, England-based producer Gold Panda, German krautrock Hans-Joachim Roedelius, experimental electronic rockers Holy Fuck. Swedish quartet Little Dragon, 80s synth vibe makers M83, avant-garde pop maker Matthew Dear, blue-eyed-soul singer Mayer Hawthorne & The County, dance pop psychedelic The Naked And Famous. synth-psychedelic Oneohtrix Point Never, livetronica sound maker STS9, synth-punk duo Suicide, progressive rockers Umphrey’s McGee, German psych-electronic Tangerine Dream, chillwave Toro Y Moi, sound revivalist Twin Shadow, and sinister-ecstatic Tim Hecker, as well as many others to be announced.

The festival takes place on October 28-30 in Asheville, NC, and  will include  performances in numerous venues throughout downtown like the Asheville Civic Center Arena, the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, and the Orange Peel Social & Pleasure Club.

It seems that the festival is evolving each year as founder Ashley Capps noticed it:
‘Last year’s reinvented Moogfest – the first to take place in Asheville – was an amazing experience – and the response from artists and fans alike was extraordinary, we’re very excited and inspired to build upon that success for the 2011 festival.’

The line-up is a mix of new-comers and well-established artists, and one last thing, Suicide will play their first album in its entirety. Will Woody go this year too?
